I am confused as the words for jaw and nose seem to be used interchangeably and I cannot decide which should be used correctly. Am i just doing something stupid ??

Ayaatsʼiin is "jaw." The picture card is incorrect.

Nose is áchį́į́h.

Just remember the picture card is wrong until they fix it. They seem to always have it correct for text-only questions.

(Hint: I remember áchį́į́h is nose because it almost sounds like a sneeze!)
